DCG has 3 terminals, which are capable of handling variety of cargo. According to clients needs, the appropriate terminal facility is appointed.
All DCG terminals are committed to UNGC (United Nations Global Compact) principles.
We undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility.
The DCG Bulk terminal is the only purpose built bulk terminal in Sub-Saharan Africa able to handle fertilizers. The terminal has a storage capacity of 25,000 cubic meters to handle all free flowing dry bulk commodities.
The main purpose of the bulk terminal is to reduce the lay time of bulk vessels in the port. Tipper trucks take the bulk cargo straight from the ship to the terminal. Direct bulk discharge almost triple the speed compared to bagging on the quay, which enables the bulk terminal an overall annual turnaround capacity of 400,000 metric ton .
The bulk terminal is a climate controlled entity which prevents any humidity related damage to the cargo handled.The outtake of the cargo can be in the form of 25 kg ,50 kg,big bags (of up to 1,500 kg) and bulk. Soon 5kg and 10kg bags are in development.
Apart from being very efficient, the high-tech bagging machines provide accurate bag weights.
DCG's 4,500 square meters metal terminal is in immediate vicinity of the port of Dar-es-salaam with annual capacity of 360,000 metric ton.
The whole logistics chain is in the hands of DCG personnel ensuring smooth and efficient operations.From truck clearance at the boarder, DCG provides a full 3PL and 4PL service to its clients up to port.
Terminal handles mainly export goods, minerals from DRC and Zambia such as copper and cobalt, as well as timber from Tanzania. However,also import goods such as mining chemicals are being handled.
As part of the SAGCOT initiative,DCG has a main logistics and transport hub located at Kisarawe.
The facility is AECF supported and handles various agricultural products. The company has acquired 100,000 square meters of land to develop for that purpose.
The first warehouse of 4,050 square meters was completed in November 2015 and received its first consignment of cargo in early December during the same year.
The facility will be linked to the TAZARA railway system.
